Basically made up of three geologically distinct islands which are bound together by long strips of sand-dunes, Miquelon-Langlade displays a large lagoon which is commonly known as the Grand Barachois. Home to large populations of seal and other marine wildlife, Miquelon-Langlade islands are also a favorite destination for bird watching.
Spread over a 205 square kilometer landscape with as few as 616 inhabitants mostly of Basque and Acadian ancestry, Miquelon-Langlade is served by the Miquelon Airport conveniently located adjacent to the main settlement of the island. Langlade Island, which is smaller of the two, is however inhabited as of now. With regular scheduled flights and ferry services from Saint Pierre and Canada, this unique tourist haven is an adventure traveler’s delight.
